So, the first half of the year is almost over; with only 6 days left, so I guess it’s time to do a wrap-up of what’s going on so far.
Throughout this first half, in general there isn’t much going on, in terms of what I’ve heard from the media, other than some big news in the technology world, particularly the announcement of Apple’s iOS 7, OSX 10.9 Mavericks, the announcement of Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 update for Windows 8, and Google’s experiment of providing internet access via a balloon, which if go ahead, will bring the entire plannet online.
Other than the big technology news, there isn’t much at all. Now let’s move on to what is going on in my life…
Well, this first half of 2013…I must say it is an absolute nightmare. Not only because there is no longer events like the residential trip and the sports day, but there are also various annoying things, mainly to do with the trolls.
The trolls had been as active as always, and this year they had done away already with the launch of the sixth trolls campaign in February. Also there are some signs that the trolls are looking to launch the seventh trolls campaign, but luckily that did not happen.
Probably the true nightmare is when the year 11 IGCSE exams season arrives. Yeah, it’s extremely boring, only to be made worse by the mass spam attack on my ask.fm account from late May to early June, and this whole two-month period was made even worse by the passing away of one student in year 11, which is a sad news that shocked the whole of year 11 and various other people in the school.
Now, what I want to focus the most is the ask.fm spam campaign, as that is what got me really annoyed.
So, from late May to early June, the trolls had been spamming my ask.fm account, and I now have over 600 answers, mainly responses to dubious messages posted by the trolls, and yet until now I was still unable to identify the exact person behind the mass spam campaign.
And, what they posted is nothing but stupid/annoying messages, some, or even most of them, weren’t proper questions at all! Even if they’re proper questions, but the questions are too annoying for me to answer properly. At least some of my good friends had managed to get them to stop, and I also tried disabling my account for a short time, to drive spammers away. These 2 moves did worked, as up until now the amount of new questions are very minimal, even though I posted the link to my account on Facebook.
Probably the only event that I can enjoy is the Songkran celebration at school. It’s fun, and I did have some good times splashing water at people at the end of the day.
To wrap things up, already this first half is like a nightmare, and that’s why I had given this calendar year as one of the worst yet in high school. I really hope that the second half would be better, since there are already some events waiting down the road, particularly the international day and Loy Krathong. But the trolls will most likely continue to annoy me, and there is good chances that the seventh trolls campaign will erupt sometime during this second half, and that is certainly not good at all. Heck, it could even happen right on the first day of year 12!
That’s it for now…
